did you personally go look at either one? according to the pic of your wheelhouse (driver side) the first one off ebay looks like the same as yours? the second one has only pics of the exterior. kinda hard to make strong assessment of correctness of whole vehicle. just saying

The one on my car is incorrect for a early 70 Camaro. That’s why I’m working the one I am. The $80k has the wrong inner fender, the $27k has the correct one.

No going back! It’s cut!

there you go, that's a good start. are those 3 holes around that cut out supposed to be there? do you have access to getting the new piece blasted or some way to remove the rust before welding?


Do you think it’s better to fill the holes or make the splice area bigger?

This probably as clean as I’ll get it until I get it welded in. Taking this rust off just confirms not to have tried to re-work the rusty fender. Look like the surface of an orange on many areas.
